A Single System Universe: A Cognitive Approach

PhD. Wassim S. Daher


Discovering the Universe requires upgrading the means that man is utilizing for this endeavor. The power of cognitive thought has long been neglected in favor of mathematical formulas. The only tool that can roam the Universe from corner to corner is the human mind. This study attempts to construct, from a cognitive perspective, a complete model of the Universe and its mechanisms. The model is then contrasted to empirical and mathematical data. A theoretical model is deducted after a preview on the concepts of time and space. The model explains empirical observations and universal mechanisms, such as the first universe, universal expansion and contour, expansion acceleration, black holes, stars integration/disintegration, and the shape of the Universe. It also introduces the most likely phenomenon of ripples. The model predicts an alternative to the theories of gravitation, speed of light and universal dynamics. It also calls for rethinking of taken-for-granted phenomena. The model can be further validated and tested by testing the proposed hypothesis for contradicting empirical observations.


Universal expansion and ripples; dark matter and dark energy; streaming and gravity; universal boundary; black holes.
